Traveling or having family and friends stay over or visit for dinners and lunches, all the while balancing school, work and errands can take a toll on you. Keeping your home looking spick and span during this time is a challenge that a lot of people surrender to.
The Secret to Holiday Cleaning
For the cleanest home, we’ll share some of our top tips (and services) to rescue you from the mountain of work and the avalanche of stress that comes with it. After all, you work hard all year. You deserve to relax and enjoy yourself on your time off!
Try the following when you’re trying to clean and prepare your home:
Be a Stranger in Your Own Home
Often when you’re accustomed to your space, you don’t see things that could use a tidy-up or some improvements. Take time out and walk around your house or condo, observing things from a fresh perspective.
You’re more likely to notice things like stains, cobwebs, maybe kids’ toys or a shoe rack that’s a mess. Go room by room, especially areas where you’re expecting company. If you’re traveling for the holidays, still do this so you leave a clean space behind and don’t miss out on anything.
Declutter and Open Up Space
Once you notice things that are out of place or taking up excessive space, pick up whatever you can. Clear up items that are lying around the house and move away excess belongings. You don’t want to host in a home where everything is just scattered and not organized.
Put away things you don’t need, especially during that time.
Address Other Errands and Chores First
This seems counterintuitive, but it’s a really handy practice. Get rid of those piles of laundry waiting to be washed and folded. When other chores are taken care of, cleaning will be much easier.
